Strijdom VAN DER MERWE
South -Africa Land art artist
Born in 1961
This recognized artist is part of the Land-art movement by the profusion of his installations.
Like many artists, he uses mainly natural materials, sand, wood, stone subjected to the natural cycles of degradation and destruction.
The impressive diversity of his ephemeral works, allows him great freedom of expression, oscillating between austere geometric plots of a more figurative order realized on the ground, or more aerial installations in the form of stairs rising to the sky or even playful textile articles floating in the air.
